As some of my faithful readers may know (uh wait, do I even have faithful readers ? Ok, never mind), my in-laws have a nice house 5 minutes from the beach in South Finistère, on the West coast of France. It’s a beautiful region known as Brittany (la Bretagne, in French).
For those of you readers leaving in the US, think about the Maine coast, that would have to be the closest thing to it (although I’d take Maine over Britany in a heartbeat, any day).
There’s constantly a gorgeous, diffused light in this place that bathes everything lovingly, including when it’s overcast or rainy (which is, most of the time).
And I won’t even mention the gorgeous sunsets
you get the idea…
Oh, of course the dog came along
Had some fun with the kid on the beach
Look at this light, ain’t it special ?
This light truly makes the place a photographer’s paradise. You’d be hard pressed taking a truly bad picture (even though I manage it now and then !)
Oh yeah, I love the dramatic skies too. Massage that in any photo editing program and you get really wow pics (unlike this one, pretty neutral)
Every night we walk to the beach
Other typical holiday activities involve chilling out in one’s pj’s
cuddling with the pooch
or napping with Daddy
basking in that glorious light.
Goofing on the beach is also in order
The young man is becoming pretty strong
And still quite the guardian angel
One of our favorite joints for a quick and tasty meal
Loving the beach house toys that she discovers over again every time
My posse !
And one of my fave pics this time around. Next vacation stop : la Dordogne, in a little over a month. Can’t wait !
